Suspected members of the deadly Boko Haram Islamic sect on Monday attacked Dille village in Borno State, killed 45 people and torched several houses and shops and forced many people to flee into nearby hills for safety.
The terrorists, it was gathered, came in a convoy of over 20 vehicles and motorcycles.
According to one of the villagers, Njimtiku Papka, who spoke to journalists in Maiduguri on the phone, the terrorists on arriving the village started shooting indiscriminately at everyone in sight.
He said, “Some of us had to flee into the nearby hills for safety, because the insurgents do not spare any person in their attacks and killings in the last three or four months. Monday’s attacks and killings bring to five other villages that had been attacked by Boko Haram gunmen, without being arrested by the military or police since January.”
He lamented that among the people killed by the insurgents were those they considered as informants to the military.
